Located in the center of “Technology Square” and adjacent to the “heart of the arts,” guests are also steps from museums, including the High Museum of Arts, Woodruff Arts Center, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the FOX Theater. 

“We’re thrilled to be working with the Renaissance Atlanta Midtown Hotel’s new owner, Carey Watermark Investors 2, establishing a strategic new owner relationship,” said John Belden, CEO of Davidson. “Our portfolio continues to see dynamic growth, and we’re proud to include this hotel as our 15th property in the Marriott family of brands.”
